Philips Hue is one of the most well-known smart home devices you can use. To break it down really simply, Hue lights are lights that you turn on and off using your smart phone, voice activated device or even a Control4 set up. Let’s walk you through some of the features that we love about the Philips Hue.

 

  • Ability to change lighting colour: This is one of the biggest features of Hue lights. You can essentially make the colour of your lights anything you want it to be. Light pink, blue, an orange that reminds you of being on holiday or even just a warm yellow: they’ve got you covered. The added bonus of this is that the lights are able to dim as well. Think of it as having a volume setting for your lights. Super handy for when you’re trying to create the perfect atmosphere.

 

  • Setting timers: Within the app, you can set certain timers for when you want the lights to turn on and off e.g. have them automatically turn on when you come home. They can even be set for outdoor lights to be turned on when the sun begins to set. You can even set it to help gradually wake you up in the morning. This is particularly helpful for those winter months when the sun isn’t around to wake you up.

 

  • Connect to other smart home devices: We absolutely love being able to simply ask Alexa or Siri to turn on lights. You can even ask them to turn your lights a certain colour with just a simple voice command.
